Anthony Strong (UK)

June 14 | 7:30 pm
wgKawki-0151 (1)

British jazz vocalist and pianist Anthony Strong has caused quite a stir in just his handful of years as a bandleader and solo artist. Anthony’s formative years were spent, on scholarships, at three of England’s leading music schools, first studying classical music before turning to jazz piano. Early obsessions with Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly eventually led to Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme and Nat King Cole, so becoming a vocalist was the logical next step. During his final years as a music student, Strong gained a reputation as a sideman and session player, and an out-of-the-blue offer to spend nine months as understudy to Jerry Lee Lewis in a London West End musical shaped his career most noticeably to where it is today, developing a stagecraft and audience rapport that has come to characterize his live show as a front man. Strong’s performance repertoire includes jazz standards, classic soul and self-penned originals that…
